About the tour

For over 2000 years, different civilizations left their mark in Lisbon. The Phoenicians, the Romans, the Visigoths, the Moors and finally the Christians, led by the first King of Portugal, Afonso Henriques.

From the shores of the Tagus river up to São Jorge Castle, you will be able to feel the mix of cultures so unique to Lisbon and learn a bit more about its history, culture and curiosities.

El tour fue genial, es una zona que es difícil visitar bien y entender si alguien no te la explica. Lorena nos hizo el tour muy ameno, nos contó muchas anécdotas y datos curiosos sobre la ciudad y esos dos barrios concretos. Se nota su conocimiento de la historia (nos contó que estudió historia y tiene un máster también en la universidad de lisboa) así no recomendaría a nadie mejor! Desde aquí le doy las gracias en mi nombre y el de mis tres acompañantes!!
